Juggernaut has come a long way from his beginnings as a bully transformed into an unstoppable foe of the X-Men. In fact, he'd recently become one of mutantkind's best human allies. So why is he trying to kill Firestar?

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 1, 2023

    X-Men #28 adds further interest with how things will end with Fall of X. Orchis continues to be put over as the endgame bosses they are. Which made the actions Firestar takes to get the X-Men information they need even more important. Now the X-Men are left in a spot where the sense of urgency increases even more. That all leads to another good chapter for the Fall of X storyline. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lukas Shayo Nov 1, 2023

    X-Men#28 is not a perfect comic, but it is a compelling one. Few books are driving the narrative of Fall of X better than this book is. The seeds of Orchis' fall are slowly being planted throughout the line, andX-Menis capitalizing while still taking time to focus on its own characters. Firestar has been waiting decades for a chance at the spotlight. It's great to see her finally getting it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Nov 2, 2023

    X-Men#28 is full of plot and enough character work to keep the ongoing 'Fall of X' interesting within the main title, but the book's role as a tentpole servicer of 'things happening' is enough to bloat it's readability as a work of narrative fiction into something that feels less creative, and more mandatory. While the likes ofUncanny Spider-ManandDark X-Menget to explore the interesting themes and ideas this line wide event asks, the main title gets to be nothing more than a documentation of things needed to push the event along without being a true story itself.

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Nov 1, 2023

    A lame-duck pall hangs over this run of X-Men, which feels increasingly like a retread of the "X-Men: Disassembled" arc that preceded House of X/Power of X. Krakoa isn't even dead and buried yet, and already the X-Men are back to retreading old ground. It's a real shame. Read Full Review
